REF: SECSTATE 50488

Mission delivered the reftel nonpaper during a May 27
briefing to a Brazilian Ministry of External Affairs (MRE)
team led by Special Advisor Marcos Pinta Gama. The
Brazilians expressed interest in the overall concept of a
maritime partnership but were curious as to what specific
programs the U.S. might be considering for Brazilian and
South American participation. The flexibility of the
proposed partnership and its applicability to a country such
as Brazil which depends on seaborne trade for its prosperity
were also important considerations. The Brazilian side
identified drug trafficking, piracy and security of the
Panama Canal as important regional issues but was unable to
give an immediate answer as to whether Brazil would join the
GMP.
